Fred Destin's former employer, Accel, is looking into his conduct, according to this article on " unnamed female founder at Accel told Bloomberg that he had behaved inappropriately with her during a conference party in 2013. Destin briefly referred to the incident on his own blog last month and said he had apologized to the woman in question. According to Bloomberg, the founder met Destin at a conference party in the US and pitched him her startup. He suggested she pitch to his previous employer, Atlas Ventures. The two danced, and then bumped into each other again at a different party, where the founder says she had to remove Destin's hands from her body. He then reportedly sent her a text containing only his hotel address, and she left the conference early because she felt uncomfortable."

Former Employee - Para Professional says

"Was discouraged for anything individual or one on one with students. Spent most of every day holding the "panic" door shut as individuals attempted to fight their way out. Some time they went in for small things like refusing to sit in a chair and getting up off the floor. Usually it was needed due to violence. Staff talked way more to one another than to children."

Current Employee - Janitorial says

Current Contractor - Systems Administrator says

Cna (Current Employee) says

"no help with work issues unprofessional and not well educated people. This company have employees that think they write you your check and treat you less. And ALOT I MEAN ALOT of racism. I'm still here only bc the residents i work with i care for alot and its not their fault that people are unprofessional and lazy"

Paraprofessional (Former Employee) says

"This campus is the worst. From day one I have had problems with co workers here. You think you would have to worry about the aggressive kids but nope you have to watch your back from your coworkers. You have to know about who you talk to (especially behavior team) because everybody will try to get you in trouble and fired if they don’t like you so watch what you say and what you say around certain people because they will go to HR/Principal trying to get you fired and even if you don’t say anything bad they will still lie on you if they don’t like you. If you still choose to work here after this review the best advice I can give you is just agree with everything the behavior team says even if they are wrong (which is 99% of the time) or hope you have a teacher/supervisor that is submissive to them because they will target your classroom and make your life a living horrible like my room went through for two years.HoursEverything...gossip, drama, behavior team members, feeling unappreciated"

Assembler (Former Employee) says

"a typical day at work consist of standing on your feet for 8 hours putting victoria secrets in a bag . The most enjoyable part was listening to music.musicstanding on your feet all day"

Paraprofessional (Former Employee) says

"Staff is extremely problematic and create a toxic work environment. Favoritism is a huge issue and there are cliques among staff. It's incredibly unprofessional for friends of supervisors to sit in during team meetings and smirk in addition to belittling staff about mistakes. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the workplace culture. Any mistakes are usually a topic of discussion for gossip instead of a learning experience. Individuals who aren't your direct supervisors will raise their voice to intervene and be insulting in passing on campus. It's amazing that a job where patience and kindness were so "valuable" but employees make you uncomfortable on a daily basis. You will resent your choice to work here and deal with the same insincere individuals in your classroom each day. Working with these types of coworkers is a living nightmare and a complete waste of time. You do not want to work here.Days OffStaff, Supervisors, Gossip"

"I was mis-informed from the time I accepted employment until my assignment was completed. I was contacted that I didn't need to return for attendance, after my mother passed away. The following morning my boss that I reported to called to ask if I was coming in. The communication was terrible. I had no idea what I was getting into. I did not get the pay that was posted when I applied for the position or any type of review after a year of employment. I was disappointed to say the least."

Heftruckchauffeur/magazijnmedewerker (Former Employee) says

"In de avond ploeg was er vaak veel extra werk wat de dag ploeg had laten liggen wat extra druk oplevert daarbij komt dat het bevoorradingssysteem vaak in storing schiet waardoor iedereen laat naar huis gaat wel leuk voor overuren, maar vervelend voor mensen die niks meer te doen hebben. Werk opdeling kan beter."

RN Case Manager (Former Employee) says

"Poor Management, high RN turnover. The management do not appreciate their RNs. There is no job security, Clinical managers/ employee changes often. Full time employee may not get full time hours. You often have to remind them you were hired full time. Too much gossiping instead of focusing on patient care. Management thrives on gossip.FlexiblityExcessive documentation"

just a nobody (Former Employee) says

"Out of date, out of style, lack off resources, charade, run down, over priced, under supported, and over rated. Only care about accreditation which must be bought. Every person who works there is miserable. The executive director funnels money around very suspiciously. No teachers will stay long enough to learn the students names, nobody knows what they're doing cause they all just started. The pay next to nothing unless you are in the circle of wine guzzling north side divorcees and have the most strict policies. The personnel manual is the thickest book on their campuses.They have a decent cafeEverything else"

Program Associate, PNC Bank (Former Employee) says

"The ACCEL training program at PNC Bank was terrible. Constant communication break downs between new associates and management. Management was more worried about their advancement within PNC than training new associates."

Assist them (Current Employee) says

"Paraprofessional/ teacher aide great work but you work with people always complaining about there salary. hard situation when your suppose to work like a team, I learned how to feed them through a g tub. The hardest part of my job is when my co-workers would argue, and we would have meetings and the problem would not get resolve.What I like the most is being able to have that bond with my student, where she or he would be more healthcarethe hours"

Gene Johnston says

"Received original “approval” status and did 3 welcome calls and signed 3 “approved funding” docs and after each time they came with we need more financials, more financials. Smh not sure if this company just scams people to get their bank login credentials or what but it sure seems like it. Complete joke of a funding company that’s highly unprofessional and suspect! And these are the guys spamming your phone and email to offer funding 24-7! Begging for customers not the other way around!"

Steve Leroux says

"Sends spam text messages"

JASON says

"I recieve unsolicited phone calls and and emails constantly from companies offering working capital. I generally just ask politely to be removed from their call list and unsubscribe/opt out fron email communication. However Accel Capital's Senior Funding Manager Jacques L., sent me an email and I replied to opt out and and her response was "Fine have it your way." How incredibly unprofessional and childish. I mean you are cold calling and emailing me and you are angry when I choose not to continue recieving unsolicited calls and emails from you that tie up my phone lines and keep real buisness calls from getting through. Lets not forget I have never express any interest in Accel Capital or asked for any communication from them. If they are so unprofessional they can't handle being told that somone is uninterested in them then can you imagine how awful they must be if you get suckered into becoming a customer."

Tim says

"Never The guy that called me from your company was very rude! I told him I was not interested in borrowing money from his company and he called me a "fat @$$ $#!+ head" but yet continued to badger me about borrowing money from your company even after I hung up on him he emailed me saying what a pleasure it was to talk to me about getting my working capital for my business. I think that was for his boss to see cause I do hope this guy does not represent how your company treats people. I am not a customer nor ever will be a customer of Accel Capital."
